Partnership

Chipping Norton Partnership of Schools includes: Chadlington, Charlbury, Enstone, Great Rollright, Great Tew, Holy Trinity, Hook Norton, Kingham, Middle Barton and St Mary’s Primary Schools.

We have a shared vision of providing our pupils with sports opportunities which fuel a passion for activity and enrichment activities which spark a love of learning. Through excellently planned and delivered activities we enhance the primary curriculum and provide pupils with positive life experiences. 

Ordinarily we have over 3400 primary pupil attendances at our events. During the pandemic we had a creative approach to offering many virtual events. We are excited about offering face to face events again this year and supplementing this with virtual events as they worked so well last year.

Sports Festivals

Our sports festivals include Dance, Ball Skills, Boccia, Multi-skills, Swimming, Hockey, Football, Netball, Rugby, Cricket, Athletics, Sports Hall Athletics and Street Dance. Each year we have over 2300 primary children attendances at these events which are led by Chipping Norton School Young Leaders.

Sports events throughout the year provide every year group with opportunities to experience physical activity in a safe and supportive environment. For Key Stage 1 we have a focus on fun and full participation in Key Stage 2 we have a move towards competition and inclusive events. Applicable events act as qualifiers for West Oxfordshire School Games Competitions.
